- Now the lights can not be switched on without power, if there is no power the lights go off.
- Fix for the alternator light, now it should light up when the alternator is producing no power (engine off or alt switch off).
- More work on the interior textures.

I think i have fixed all the issues i was aware of, so now is a good moment for uploading this version to fgaddon. @D-ECHO if you don't mind could you please upload the changes when you have a moment? Thanks you!

Regards!

Anyone aware of the R44 that crashed in Newport Beach a couple days ago killing 3 souls. A Google search brings up a few articles on it.

either your image is backwards OR you removed the wrong one OR you wrote the wrong side... this is why, for example when talking about cars, i use "driver side" and "passenger side"... that way you know which side is being discussed no matter if you are inside the craft or outside of it... the "driver side" (aka pilot side) is always the same... going by your image, you removed the right side overhead window ;)

Im reworking the FDM

- Now it correctly needs left pedal input for correct for torque.
- added a lot of real numbers form the r44 handbook and other sources.
- Now the rotor is based on the r22 one
- Adjustemens on the cg, if only the pilot it should have a tendency to drift backwards.


I still need to adjust a lot of things so any testing will be much apreciated.

Regads!

In have uploaded more tweaks to the FDM, as always, any feedback is very apreciated.

Adjusted the cg acording to the data on the r44 handbook.
